more info here too actually
But the guy on the othere thread said that "Bush and his cronies" were responsible for anti-online gaming bills??? This bills sponsor is a Democrat!
Does it not stand out to anybody else that the guy who introduced this bill is from New Jersey
, a state that has legal casinos
and is probably feeling in in the pocketbook from revenues they are losing b/c folks can stay home and gamble instead of driving to Atlantic City?? What bullshit hypocrisy-it's immoral for you to gamble, unless you're doing it where the politicians can get a chunk of the money, like B&M casinos, lotto, horse tracks, bingo parlors, etc. Utter and complete bullshit.
If you're an online player, and you're not contacting your representatives' offices and letting them know how you feel about these crap anti-gaming bills, then you need to. If you've got time to post on this site, you can take the time to send your congressman an e-mail.
